    keep in mind that much (if not all) of the design concepts and engineering learned by doing the TAM has gone into later products. that's sorta the whole point of it. you know, see what _could_ be done, then work towards incorporating those ideas into 'viable' machines.

    exactly. it's more like a technology demo. basically it's showing off what apple is possible of doing even though a real mass production product may be way off.

    I'm think more cutting edge than a digital camera <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />



    Apple use to not lead in the "overall experience" but they also did things before others and implented things before others. not anymore.. Apple is a lot more conservative with the exception of design. They don't like to take risks. I think a cool 25th anniversary limited edition mac that had no limits put on it would be very cool thing

    The G5 is the next Generation chip from apple, first to be used in PowerMac G4s. Which will be then called PowerMac G5s.



    The power of this thing is supposed to be phenomenal, someone mentioned that a single 800Mhz G5 is supposed to whip dual 2000 XP athlons, but at the moment its all speculation, people a not beliving what they hear, and thats good, but we shouldn't all be the Doubting Thomas.



    We'll just have to wait and see, and the anniversary would be the perfect oppertunaty to show off a new chip.

    Plan on a new matrix with six quadrants by MW2003 that will include a workstation and server(probably rack mounted). These will be the MacPro series or some similar type of name and utalize the G5 and all the new bus technologies. <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

    quadrants being objects with 4 sides. There can be as many of them as you like.

    Oh yeah, and what a way to celebrate their anniversary in style. </strong><hr></blockquote>



    Personally, I don't care if Apple releases the G5 housed in a trash can. I just want it released pronto so I can retire my 8600/200 (and run OS X).

    There isn't going to be a 25th aniversary mac, it's not like Steve Jobs to do that. With Jobs at Apple every Mac is as cool as the TAM was. They don't need a special edition because all of their computers are special edition...at least that's what Jobs want's people to think, and I believe he's doing a good job at it.



    More likely, Apple will introduce a revised model for the 25th aniversary, and point out that this new model is so awesome that it is fitting for the 25th aniversary computer. This might be the Powermac G5, or the Titanium. NOt the iBook or iMac, because Apple will want to showcase their leading edge tech.

    The term quandrant means one of four sections. Here is the relevant entry from the American Heritage Dictionary:



    Any of the four areas into which a plane is divided by the reference axes in a Cartesian coordinate system, designated first, second, third, and fourth, counting clockwise from the area in which both coordinates are positive.



    Besides, if quadrant meant an object with 4 sides, does that mean Apple will now have 24 product categories?

    i don't know. i liked it when apple had a specific name for each imac. i wouldn't mind seeing the return of a Special Edition version of the iMac, if they ever get the current models shipping.



    but i doubt that they will. oh well. shit happens

    If we put todays technology and encase it in a 2002 (TAM'ish) type case, then what would its specs be? What would it look like?
